Nordost is a premium quality interconnect and cable manufacturer, designing and engineering outstanding products to enhance the sound integrity of high quality hifi and home cinema systems. Nordost are known to be the manufacturer who set the standard for high-end flat cables, a superior quality achieved through the use of uniquely developed conductor solutions that originated within the aerospace industry.
The Nordost design philosophy is to offer a pure and untainted signal transfer between hifi components, whether that be from CD player to amplifier or amplifier to loudspeaker. Nordost cables utilise a variety of groundbreaking processes and developed proprietary technologies to form the superior product that has become so critically acclaimed and loved today.
These innovative design principles include their innovative Dual/Micro-Mono Filament, TSC (Total Signal Control) technology and newly developed HOLO:PLUG connectors. Nordost's impressive range of products began as one simple, yet cutting edge cable and has since expanded into a vast series of all-encompassing high fidelity solutions, now not limited only to cables but also anti-resonant/energy dissipating hifi upgrades and accessories.
The Valhalla reference series of interconnects and cables was first released by Nordost in 2001 and set the benchmark for high performing loudspeaker cables, mains cables, digital interconnects and analogue interconnects for the industry. In 2013, Nordost revisited the acclaimed and world renowned Valhalla series to integrate new and enhanced production techniques and materials to form the Valhalla 2, or V2 for short.
The V2 range stays true to the high standard of Nordost design philosophy, utilising silver-plated, oxygen free copper solid core conductors and their intelligent FEP insulation method. Each cable's length is mechanically tuned and makes full use of asymmetrical grounding to help form the significant improvements over the already well established original Valhalla series.
The V2 range also uses Nordost's world famous Dual Mono-Filament technology alongside a state-of-the-art proprietary connector, the innovative HOLO:PLUG. This plug means that the best possible interface is formed for the contact between cable and component. This combination results in a ground breakingly low-mass design with the best possible signal transfer possible, delivered with a perfect level of impedance matching
VALHALLA Reference Power Cord from Nordost redefines the standards of performance in this category. The Valhalla offers a dramatic sound stage, tremendous dynamicrange and superb articulation of the musical event. When used with video components; clarity, detail, and the natural depth of colors are revealed. Valhalla Power Cord uses Nordost's new proprietary 'Dual Micro Mono-filament' technology to enhance audio and video performance.
The cable consists of 7 solid extruded silver 16 AWG OFC conductors suspended in a Dual Micro Mono-Filament design. The VAHALLA power cable has a very high propagation speed. Unlike conventional power cables which have propagation speeds of less than 50% the speed of light, VALHALLA Reference power cord has a speed of 90 % the speed of light.
By using very precise manufacturing techniques, whereby the seven mono-filament silver plated power conductors are wound in a special configuration, the impedance, capacitance, and other electrical specifications are maintained to very tight tolerances. Another benefit of this design is to eliminate external EMI/RF interference. The result is truly superb sound quality and stunning visuals.
Each VALHALLA Reference is hand built at our factory in the USA using highest quality Gold Plated connectors. Each cable uses the highest grade IEC connectors with triple gold plated Oxygen Free Copper contacts for improved conductivity. The design of the connector eliminates stress so that heat cycling and vibration will not loosen the contact points. IEC and AC Main Plugs are used in each cable.
